Saravôsh

Formerly a great elvish city, Saravôsh was once the greatest surface citadel of the Dark-Elves, but was utterly destroyed by a magical catastrophe that also created the enormous Grôn chasm. The city of Saravôsh destroyed in 1036/2, in a terrible battle during the War of Wrath. After Saravôsh was destroyed, the horrific magical energies expended in its destruction unleashed a dark force of nature called Ashfall; a period of forty years of black rain and darkness that covered most of eastern Corwyn, poisoning the lands forever. One of the unexpected results of Ashfall was the Taint. This irreversible magical poisoning caused the appearance of the Dark-Elves to be altered forever; their skin turned black, their hair turned white, and they began to hate sunlight. Soon after, the Dark-Elves began to migrate underground, mostly through the huge Grôn Chasm.

Battle of Saravôsh


Epic battle in 1036/2 between the Dark-Elves and Silvar-Elves during the War of Wrath. During the battle, the Dark-Elves were defeated and in a final act of desperation, unleashed a powerful magical explosion that killed the Elf-King Ismelian, destroyed both opposing armies, as well as the entire city of Saravôsh. The explosion also created an enormous chasm in the surface that came to be called Grôn. Only a lucky few Silvar-Elves escaped alive from this explosion, including Ismelian’s son, Talarion Brightstar.
